Network Solaris 8 crash on Enterprise 3500


Should anyone be able to help, one of my colleagues was doing a truss this morning and I am not sure if it has offset the system crash, but we have had these type of errors coming up????

# ls
ls: Cannot read /usr/lib/
# ps -ef
ps: Cannot read /usr/lib/
# prstat
prstat: Cannot read /usr/lib/
# q
q: not found
# exit

[Connection closed by host]

Should you be able to assist, I would be grateful, at present I am rebooting the system.

Hi, as I see your problem could be a damage library ( or perhaps there is a missing link to that library, did you try to install any kind of "workshop" where all those libraries are included?
Let me tell you something I've installed Solaris8 in several Enterprises and only in a E3500 I had troubles in my case "man pages" seems not to be installed there was no entry for man, could it be a bug for E3500?
